The Laramie County Community College Foundation
recently announced that three students from Adelante: The Center for Getting Ahead
will be honored this month for their efforts in that program.
Nicole Little was chosen as student of the year, and Lori Manzanares and Lena Gonzales were honorable mention recipients.
Adelante provides low income parents with the training and support services needed to gain employment in high demand careers. The program is funded by the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services and donors from the Laramie County Community College Foundation.
“Many of the students who come through Adelante deserve recognition for all their hard work and dedication to learning, while navigating through many personal life challenges. I wish we could honor each one,” said Christie Goertel, program manager.
Through a rigorous selection process, these three students were selected to be presented with the honors from LCCC’s president, Dr. Joe Schaffer.
Little was recognized for her persistence, positive attitude and inspiring dedication to her children during a training where she was faced with personal insurmountable issues. She is now employed with Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.
“I could not thank Adelante enough for the future they have given my children and me,” she said.
